Please note: Pre-reserved sessions are booked out, but drop-ins are welcome and can be accommodated during all sessions.

Brisbane-based artist Caitlin Franzmann’s Tree-telling returns to MPavilion in 2018.

In Tree-telling, Franzmann deploys hand-crafted divination cards as the trigger for experimental one-on-one encounters between the artist and individual participants. The seven cards are paired with seven sound compositions, each corresponding to a tree in the Queen Victoria Gardens surrounding MPavilion: Canary Island Palm, River Red Gum, London Plane, Algerian Oak, Jacaranda, Atlas Cedar and Lilly Pilly.

Selecting a card from the deck, visitors embark on a journey that proceeds from tarot reading to a shared walk from MPavilion to their chosen tree and back followed by an experimental listening session.

Music for the original Tree-telling sonic works is composed by David M. Thomas.
